Okay, I lied.

November 20, 2009

I thought I was over my craving obsession with pizza.  The addiction had subdued but after my last post, I started to talk to people about pizza.  Pizza places, kinds of pizza, toppings, etc.  My co-worker David even visited Giovanni’s after that post to check it out.  He gave it an A because of the chewiness of the crust and the awesome parmesan they provide!  With each discussion, my mouth started salivating and I started NEEDING it again.  A pure addict, indeed.

I knew I wanted either Giovanni’s or Round Table last night and we chose the latter because we had a coupon.   Out of the specialty pizzas, the King Arthur is my fave:  Pepperoni, Italian sausage, Italian dry salami, linguica, white mushrooms, green peppers, yellow onions, and black olives. Baked with a blend of 3 cheeses and Zesty Red Sauce.

If you buy a large specialty pizza at regular price, you get a one-topping medium pizza for 50 cents!!  It is in honor of Round Table’s 50th Anniversary.  I was in heaven because I love King Arthur’s and I LOOOOOOOVE mushroom pizza.  I’m not sure if Boyfriend thought I was joking when I said we should get both but that’s what we did.  Of course we have leftovers – that was the original plan!  And of course, I am fine with eating the leftovers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. : )

Side Street Inn

July 28, 2008

One of my favorite places to eat on Oahu is Side Street Inn.  It’s best to go with a big group because the portions are gangous and you always leave with leftovers.  We went in a group of nine this time but our eyes were bigger than our stomachs because we had leftovers of practically every dish we ordered!

I’m sure that anyone who has read any of my Hawaii entries knows that I LOVE poke.  It is a must order at Side Street.

I can’t go to Side Street without ordering the garlic edamame.  They are oh-so-garlicky and excellent!  We took the leftover garlic edamame to eat on the plane the next day and as soon as we took out the bag, the entire cabin reeked of garlic. : )

I also love their house fried rice and order it every time I go.

I believe Side Street is best known for their pork chops.  I can’t even explain how good they are.  I like mine plain (without ketchup) because they have so much flavor on their own!  One order is over twenty bucks but well worth it.  Boyfriend is such a weirdo, he had never tried them before!

I didn’t even try some of the dishes we ordered because they were at the opposite end of the table and also because I was concentrating on my favorite four dishes. : )  The beef was great and looking at the rest of the pictures, I’m getting hungry.  I wish I tried the other dishes as well!
